Quantic Dream’s Tantalizing ‘PS4’ Project, XSeed’s Surprise Killer Game and Other Secrets

Kotaku: In mid-November, Quantic Dream registered the domain singularityps4.com, suggesting a title and system for the second of two games the Parisian developer is said to be developing for Sony. Despite Cage declaring a lack of enthusiasm for the next generation of consoles, it's been evident for a while his company is eyeing future platforms. (PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Heavy rain 2

Ezz2013  +   948d ago
i don't think it's a new Heavy rain
because the game ended pretty well

let them keep working on new ip's

Cage also said he don't like sequels

Spoiler *Most of the characters are dead, no point in doing a sequal unless it's a copycat in a different suburb with completely different characters. Even then I still don't see much point in it as the motive wouldn't be anywhere near as good as the first.

He said that sequels ruin the story. I hope other devs understand that not every game must have 2-3 sequels and online multiplayer.

I hope they get to make Kara into a full game, it might end up going toe to toe with Cyberpunk 2077

It's not Heavy Rain 2. When Beyond: Two Souls was announced, Quantic Dream confirmed they were working on a second IP which hasn't been named yet. It'll surely be on the PS4.

Only one thing is certain; if Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls look as good as they do on the PS3, their PS4 titles will be miraculous.

Did you actually play Heavy Rain? Because I don't see how anyone who did, could ask for a sequel. Its a great original IP anyway. No need for everything to get a successor.

2pacalypsenow  +   948d ago
Yeah Heavy rain 2 wouldnt work as almost everyone dies( depending on your ending) but the title itself its based on that particular story (Ethan getting closer to drowning the more and more it rains"
Temporary  +   948d ago
they COULD technically make a 'spiritual sequel' to heavy rain. Same TYPE of game just a different name and story.

I dont care though, anything they make will be a breath of fresh air like Heavy Rain was.
DivineAssault  +   948d ago
Beyond 2 souls is the closest your going to see to a sequel.. Like 999 for the DS has a "sequel" called Zeros escape.. No need to keep the same thing going sometimes.. It gets stale like many games this gen..

Anyway, a new IP for PS4 is great news.. Im sure theres going to be some fantastic games coming within the next year or so for nx gen consoles

After Playstation 1, 2, and 3 I think it's highly likely it will be named PS4. Anything else wouldn't make sense.

I believe Sony will try to buy QD after release of beyond 2 souls.

Great plan by Sony for having 2 teams with each studio me doing ps3 games and other doing ps4.

I would also like to know what the other team at DM are working on since the original is working of war.

E3for Sony could be epic

Show uncharted 4 running on ps4 or atleast a trailer
GT6 with a release date would be killer if launches with PS4
Killzone 4 just to show what ps4 is capable of

Show SP new IP since most likely they are not doing infamous 3
New ratchet and clank game, do it properly. A direct story line follow up from a crack in time

Ready at dawn studios have been working on next gen title rumored to be for PS4

Can't wait for E3
imdaboss1  +   948d ago
The reason why i support Sony so much is that they care about us gamers thats why you see so MANY exclusive games just for their console....They did messed up the price for the PS3..but they solved it within a year with a price drop..I hope they learn from their mistake and release it the same time as the next xbox with some killer games..
AngelicIceDiamond  +   948d ago
If that's the case expect Quantic Dreams to make an appearance at E3 2013 to present another brand new game.

Dear E3 2013, SLAUGHTER! E3 of 2012 thank you ( :

I'm curious as to why ppl insist using this speculation as a declarative fact
Do you believe that next gen systems won't reach the 1080p60fps threshold Sony and MS have targeted? Or quite simply do you believe even if they do, it won't be as big a jump as this past one?
Baka-akaB  +   948d ago
i dunno why people keep telling themselves that . Even stuff like cod looks suddenly beautiful jumping from 720p , no even sub hd to 1080p

tommygunzII  +   948d ago
I agree with you completely. I play PC games at 1080p and once you get a certain distance from the TV you couldn't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p.
The difference from PS1 to PS2 was visible from a distance, same with PS2 to PS3, but you will have to get a little closer to see the differences between PS3 and PS4. Common sense really.
lfclee  +   948d ago
Your all deluded if you think you think it is going to be a huge difference in graphics , you'd have to look really close to notice the difference like tommygunz11 said.
Why are people so sad they don't like the truth are they that messed up that they believe everything they hear or are they strangers too the truth or know nothing what so ever about Gpu's , I put it down to all three claims !

You all act like everyone is gaming on little a$z tv's! When I'm sure most gamers that perceive gaming as a entertainment outlet, would also view it as a hobby!

So speaking from my perspective, I invested in the best for my gaming pleasures, as I'm sure alot of others have!

So just to elaborate further: I have a 47in Sony Bravia 3D tv hooked up to a Samsung 7.2 channel 3D receiver, 4 Bass reflex Q Power tower speaker, with 4 small satellite speakers, a center channel speaker with a 400 watt Klipsch sub woofer, round it all off with a 3d Blu ray player by Samsung.

What I'm saying in all this is, to get the best!
There will be people willing to invest in the Best!

Also having a 47in tv has allowed me to differentiate 720p from 1080p quite easily .
OT: Quantic Dream are definately developers who have been able to unlock the magic of what the ps3 is capable of! and I'm sure that that trend will continue when it comes to the ps4.
imdaboss1  +   948d ago
It will be a huge enough for gamers for now..PS4 looks to be 50 percent more powerful then the next xbox
hazardman  +   948d ago
Dude..dude..dude come on now its gonna be Less than 50% dude don't exagerate. Rumoured specs have them being about the same and yes with PS4 being slighlty more powerful but 50% come on....hahahahahahaahaa....had to laugh. I'm buying both so I. Don't care its just your comment was funny 50% more powerful bwahahahahaha!!!! On a more serious note I asked the manager at my local gamestop if he had any word. He told us he believes Sony will announce something Feb. He could be wrong of course but he sounded very confident.

Well I can see that Sony will buy Quantic Dream in no-time, maybe after Beyond is released.

2 games, just 2 games.

like sucker punch, but they must be good.

it's a simple mathematic

one good one bad = bad
one good two good = good
one good two good one bad = good

must game studios make one good the rest bad is that the ONE good game is there by default

Sony would make a big mistake if they don't buy them. It was a mistake not buying Insomniac. Just look at Fuse and compare it to Resistance.

Last I checked, SONY offered to buy Insomniac multiple times but was denied because they insist on being independent.

It be would bad for the gaming industry though. Indies have full control over their projects.

Companies like -$ony suppress originality and creativity, as the primary goal of acquiring an indie developer is ownership of their IP's. Just look at what -$ony did to Zipper Interactive and what they doing to Media Molecule.

-Essentially "Milking" Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet IP.
-Causing some Media Molecule developers/employees to leave including the lead coder of lbp's core component "user-creation".
-Dictating MM's creative freedom

Zipper Interactive was losing them money. Socom 4, Mag, & Unit 13 were failures and lost them money so you say you would keep a studio that is losing your money? No you wouldn't. You will make sure they won't lose you any more money by shutting them down. If i was in Sony's shoes, i would have shut them down after the second failure but they gave them 3 chances to make a successful game and they striked out.
Prove that developers/employees/lead coder left Media Molecule.
Media Molecule wanted to do something else than LBP and Sony allowed them. If Sony was limiting their creativity they would have said no you have to work on LBP. I am no Sony nor Microsoft fan. MM wanted to make Tearaway and Sony said fine. Look at what Microsoft did to Rare. Their creativity is gone. MM only made 2 LBP games and they can choose what they want to do but that game must not fail or Sony may question them next time to make sure it isn't a failure.

You say originality and creativity is suppressed by Sony but Microsoft does it even worse. When was the last time Microsoft make a new IP Game?

Conzul  +   948d ago
Heavy Rain was the first (roughly) of its kind, and it was far from perfect - though I enjoyed it and it rocked on harder difficulty.

I'm sure all the XP that went to Cage and his studio will properly amaze us in the form of Beyond: Two souls. Day 1 for me as well.

@walker. i don't think so. Look at the difference in detail from your 1st set of links to your second.Look at the lack of detail in the train car she is standing on. Big difference there. They are just basically interactive movies.(which is good by the way.) If you know Cage you won't have too much control over the characters.

Unless they're renaming the game, then i bet Activision is coming after them for Singularity. It's published by them and made by a studio of theirs.
